CREATING A FAUX BRICK CONCRETE STENCIL DESIGN ON WALL 

Create faux brick stenciled concrete wall pattern using Concrete Overlay and Pigment. DIY homeowners commonly use stencils to mimic stone or brick, and now some are applying the same technique to walls and other vertical surfaces for the most custom look possible.

How Do You Create a Faux Brick Wall On Concrete?

With the aid of a self-adhesive paper stencil, integrally colored Concrete Overlay may be sprayed on a vertical or horizontal surface with a hopper gun to create a faux  brick wall finish.

Is It Possible to Make Concrete Look Like Brick?

Yes, using a stencil and integrally colored Concrete Overlay allows users to create a textured, stampable surface for floors and vertical walls. 

How to Create a Patterned Concrete Stencil for Walls and Floors

Direct Colors Concrete Overlay can be used a variety of ways, from Resurfacing an Old Countertop to Refinishing a Patio or Floor. Because this material is so versatile, it can also be sprayed on a vertical or horizontal surface with a hopper gun to create any desired faux finish. Stencils are commonly used for driveway edging, patio, porch, flooring concrete stencil design finishes. Occasionally, a concrete professional will take on a more challenging wall stencil project and the results are often spectacular and always cutting edge.

This building was constructed in 1927 and in very poor condition when Ken began work. Ken’s task was to take a dilapidated space and turn it into the new home for Okie Peach Salon and Boutique in McAlester, OK.

The floor and walls had both been cut and patched for wiring and plumbing at various points in the past. He needed to coat the walls with concrete before proceeding with the decorative overlay finish and brick stencil tape.

If anyone has the patience and professionalism to do this job, it’s Kenneth Lazenby!

This project was challenging from the beginning given the age and condition of the building. Ken started from scratch on both the walls and floors with concrete patches followed by Concrete Overlay to provide the decorative finish.

A final coat of smooth gray overlay was applied to the walls and taped off using a brick stencil, Ken sprayed a coat of overlay integrally colored with Earthen Red (1830-3lb.) concrete pigment to create the faux brick finish.

Once dry and the stencil stripped, he highlighted random bricks with varying red shades of Tinted Solvent Based Sealer for a more authentic brick wall facade.

The wall was then sealed using Acrylic Satin Finish Sealer to protect the finish and deepen the color.

Due to plumbing and electrical cuts, the floor also needed patching. Smooth Gray Overlay was applied to the entire floor and later acid stained with Coffee Brown Acid Stain diluted as much at 10 parts water to 1 part stain to create the rustic, leather-like appearance.

Finally, the floor was also sealed using the Acrylic Satin Finish Sealer and waxed with Commercial Floor Wax and Polish to protect from daily wear and tear.

Regular waxing is important in high traffic spaces like hair salons where high traffic and repetitive motion around hair stations is likely.
